Suzuki Symptom list  for A/T transmissions 4 speed   

Items in Red do not apply to 3speed.
This page shows most symtoms  and what is covered in the FSM, it does not show what causes this symptom.  Even one 10cent O-ring can take down this house of cards.

Fail Groups (all are in chapter 5 of my FSM)  I'm listing only the symptoms, the FSM cover these causes in over 150 page.(just the 4sp alone)  Buy the FSM and read it.
 
Group 1:
TCC does not engage.  (torque converter clutch lockup)
Gear does not change to  4th ( 3rd of 3speed)

On car checks. (A/T not removed)

The first test on page 24 is the A/T main pump line pressure test. (after a new filter) a clogged filter will many times , cause a hot transmission to shift but never cold.
